My name is Jim Donnelly


I grew up in San Jose, California but have called the Greater Los Angeles Area home since college. I am a freelance photographer who absolutely loves what I get to do. I appreciate the people I meet, the places I go, and the spontaneity in every shoot.

I appreciate the uniqueness in how we all see the world. My vision to to share the world as I see and the moment I am able to capture. I hope that those that experience my work can relate to my work and appreciate the artistic vision I provide.

Jim is not only a great photographer, but he is also someone who we are comfortable with putting in front of all guests at Los Angeles magazine events. He is approachable and does a great job with his craft. People love posing for Jim…and he also allows people have fun and be themselves in the shots (it’s all in the editing, after all). Jim is also super reliable and gets our photos back in a prompt manner. We will continue to hire Jim to shoot our most important events – not just for his talent, but also for his friendly and sunny disposition
